COVID-19 UPDATE: Anthem is only gathering online via our livestream.

Outdoor Gatherings | What to Expect

Welcome to Anthem!
We are so glad you are planning to join us for our outdoor gatherings! As we look forward to being together, please take a moment to review what you and your household can expect as you arrive on Sunday morning.
1. Aside from the primary goal of worshipping our Lord as we gather, one of our highest priorities is to remain both hospitable and safe. Our first step in this is prevention – if you or anyone in your household is exhibiting any symptoms of sickness or has been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not attend our in-person gatherings until you are well again. We are still utilizing our livestream; each week the same sermon and worship is used for both options, so you won’t miss a thing. The symptoms and situations to look out for are:
  • Within the past 24 hours (NEW or not explained by a pre-existing condition)
    •  Fever (≥100°)
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Unexplained muscle aches
    • Loss of sense of smell or taste
    • Nasal congestion (not allergies)
    • Diarrhea (≥ 3 loose stools in 24 hours)
    • Eye redness with or without drainage
  • If, in the past 14 days, you have tested positive for COVID-19 (or are currently being tested for COVID-19 and have symptoms)
  • If, in the past 14 days, you have lived with or otherwise been exposed to someone who has COVID-19 or you are currently being tested for COVID-19 and you have symptoms. Exposure is defined as: less than 6 feet away for more than 15 minutes, with one or more individuals not masked.
2. As you arrive, please find a parking space and put on a mask. You will soon be met by one of our greeters, who will direct you towards the Welcome Center. Please maintain social distancing as you wait in line and approach the tent.

3. At the Welcome Center, everyone will have their temperature taken with a contactless thermometer. Temperatures will be recorded solely for uses in contact tracing, if needed. If anyone in the household has temperature above 100° the entire household will be asked to return home and utilize the livestream for the morning. If temperatures for the household pass, you will be provided with pre-packaged communion elements and some hand sanitizer. Your household will then be met by an usher.
4. The usher will escort your household to your seats, which will be appropriately distanced from others. Please maintain this distance for the duration of the gathering. Facility bathrooms will be cleaned before the gathering and are open for use during the gathering.
5. Our gatherings should last approximately an hour and 15 minutes. Every Sunday morning on our app you will find a digital bulletin, where we list important information about our church, upcoming events, and lyrics for the songs we will sing that day.
6. Once the gathering has ended, rows will be dismissed one by one. Proper distancing and masks must continue to be utilized as households say goodbye and eventually leave the property.
After attending, if for any reason you do not feel comfortable with the environment we’ve curated, we would love to hear your concerns or suggestions for improving safety. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at for any reason at any time during this process.
We look forward to worshipping with you in person! May we make Jesus known together, worshipping him in every season we walk through together as his church.
